Champaign, OH:  Black Magic Woman

You got your spell on me baby
You got your spell on me baby
Yes, you got your spell on me baby…
(Black Magic Woman-Fleetwood Mac)

We just want to put our spell, onto you, with all of our dazzling products, new products, new vendors…it’s totally bewitching in this month of October…

So, let’s get down to this…your market managers were busy from Thursday until yesterday, catering a super long wedding event. Thursday dinner, Friday dinner, Saturday dinner. The crowd, each night, raved about the food. The freshness of it. The taste. The appearance. Some have never tasted a real roasted carrot drizzled in local honey. They have never tasted meat that comes straight from a farm. They have never tasted bread quite like they were offered.

And, it was with such pride that we were able to talk about not only what we do as Hippie and the Farmer, but also what we do, individually, with Oakview Farm Meats, and Cosmic Charlie Baking and Bread. But, it didn’t stop there. As I was serving them their salads, heavy in organic kale, I was also able to talk to them about this market. It’s many vendors. The concept of this market. The ease. The amazing products. And, it brought me such pride to not only talk about the market, but to add names, such as all of the vendor business names. And, as I listened to myself talk, I felt myself beaming with pride. I told them about the amazing customer base, and how easy it was to become a customer. How easy it was to order, pick up, and go on your way, each Thursday.

And, soon, there will be an even easier way for you to use this market…and, as soon as all the details are worked out, we will unveil the next level…

Until then…keep letting us put a spell on you, with our dazzling magic…

It is Monday, and the market will be open until Wednesday morning, at 8am!!

Market News

We dodged a bullet last week when Michael came roaring through. Aside from minor wind damage here and there, our growers came out pretty well after the storm. It wouldn’t have taken much of a change to bring the heart of the storm right through here instead of racing across mid-Georgia, where it ripped up cotton fields, peanut farms, poultry farms, pecan orchards, and many small towns along the way.

Fall weather does seem to have taken hold, though, and while that means many of our summer crops will soon be saying their goodbyes (though not all, thanks to the many greenhouses our growers use) it also means the autumn crops are in their element. We should be awash in leafy greens real soon, and I love that.

Thank you so much for your support of Athens Locally Grown, all of our growers, local food, and our rights to eat it. You all are part of what makes Athens such a great area in which to live. We’ll see you on Thursday at Ben’s Bikes at the corner of Pope and Broad Streets from 4:30 to 8pm!

Other Area Farmers Markets

The Athens Farmers Market runs Saturday mornings at Bishop Park and Wednesday afternoons at Creature Comforts downtown. You can catch the news on their website. The West Broad Farmers Market has returned, and you can catch the details on their website here: The Comer Farmers’ Market is open on Saturday mornings from 9am to noon. Check for more information. Washington, GA also has a lovely little Saturday market, running Saturdays from 9 to noon. You can learn all about them here: Folks to the east can check out the Hartwell Farmers Market, which starts bright and early on Saturday morning from 7am to noon, and Tuesday afternoons from noon to 4pm. The city of Monroe has a downtown market on Saturdays, 8:30 to 12:30, and you can learn more here: If you know of any other area markets operating, please let me know.

All of these other markets are separate from ALG (including the Athens Farmers Market) but many growers sell at multiple markets. Please support your local farmers and food producers, where ever you’re able to do so!

We thank you for your interest and support of our efforts to bring you the healthiest, the freshest, and the most delicious locally-produced foods possible!
